What's the hold up here?

I checked in expecting you to be preping for paint!

You're slowing down, John

Now I need more cookies

John, you have to be the most prolific builder I have ever seen. While words fail to adequately express my admiration for your talent, skill and passion, I did want to thank you for unselfishly sharing your secrets with us. I learn something new from every WIP you share on this forum. I'll be following this one as well, but wanted you to know that by sharing these, you're performing a great service to all of us and I for one can't thank you enough.

Hey John. This looks like a great project! Your dad has quite an amazing project of his own. I remember meeting you at a model show in Victorville a few years ago. IIRC, it was your 1st competition. I was there with the offroad racer model group. Your cars were very impressive then and you haven't gone backwards since.

Moving along at a great clip, John. The eye candy has started to roll off your bench again. Loving it.

John, this is sure to be a wild project for sure. Is this operation really based out of Ft. Lauderdale, and if so are they planning on attending Bike Week here that cranks up this weekend? I would love to see this in person.


Usually right off Main st.....Near the Boothill...on the other side......look for the smoke!
